The Coliseum would like to extend a huge congratulations and thank you to Stephen Aluko! Stephen is the most recent graduate of The Coliseum internship program and will be representing The Coliseum along with The University of West Georgia on the national stage. In July, Stephen will be moving to Manhattan, Kansas to begin his journey as a Graduate Assistant at Kansas State University.
Stephen has been a member of The Coliseum Crew since his freshman year at UWG, working his way up from Operations Assistant to Operations Lead to Facility Operations and Administration Intern. Along the way, he found a way to impact both the department and the students he worked alongside every day. We are very proud of Stephen and know that he will represent everything UWG and The Coliseum stand for and will continue his success as a K-State Wildcat!
